Financial and business advisers Grant Thornton is reshaping its Private Client team in Northampton as the firm continues to strengthen its expert offering for both individuals and corporate firms across the region.
Kevin Gale (pictured here), partner at Grant Thornton’s Northampton office, now heads up the 50 strong team and is leading a new investment strategy to grow the firm’s Private Client services, pooling its considerable skills and expertise from across the region. This will be supported by a string of new appointments.
Commenting on the changes, Kevin Gale said: “Grant Thornton has a strong reputation in Northampton amongst corporate clients for its extensive expertise in Wealth Management, Trusts, Accounting and Personal Tax Advisory but we provide an equally valuable resource for individuals requiring strategic and practical support and guidance on decision making. This can be anything from advice on personal tax and financial planning to managing land and estates for high net worth individuals.
“Every client has different needs and our growing team of Private Client specialists provides a rich bank of knowledge coupled with strong commercial awareness, all under one roof, which both individuals and businesses can easily tap into and access the best strategic advice for their circumstances.”
The announcement comes at a time when both businesses and individuals are facing increased uncertainty as Britain’s future relationship with the EU remains unclear.
Kevin added: “Whilst Northampton is renowned for its strong business community, both corporate firms and individuals are operating in an unpredictable economic environment. Volatility in the financial markets, uncertainty over subsidies and land prices and changes to inheritance tax affect both individuals and businesses across all sectors. Having secure financial advice in place will be key in helping to overcome these challenges.”
